Ruen industry was established in 1952 as part of a plan for an industrial organization of former Yugoslavia. The company initially began operations as a small manufacturer of clutches and gears. The main goal after its opening was to supply clutches and gears for the Yugoslav Army and automotive industry.

The initially required amount of produce and the desire for improving the quality was a preparatory step for further cooperation with leading manufacturers in this field, as well as future investments in innovative technologies. Today the business of Ruen Inox Automobile comprises the production of automotive spare parts: clutches (clutch cover, disk drive and release bearing), for passenger cars, trucks, buses and tractors.

The industrial plants of Ruen Inox Automobile are located in Kocani, a medium size city in the Republic of Macedonia near the Bulgarian border. Apart from its very good geographic location, Ruen is the only company in the Balkans producing these kind of products.

This central location in South-Eastern Europe provides fast truck deliveries to all former Yugoslavian Republics, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and Western Europe. For maritime transport of their products to the Middle East and Africa, the company uses the port of Thessaloniki in Greece, 250 km from Kocani.
